Kum & Go campaign raises $240K for toys

— Through its “Drink good. Do good.” fall fundraising campaign, Kum & Go convenience stores in Oklahoma and 10 other states raised $240,000 to help buy toys for underprivileged children this holiday season.

Kum & Go committed to a minimum contribution of $100,000 to Toys for Tots, and reached that goal in just the first half of the campaign, which started Oct. 1 and ended Dec. 7. In addition, more than 2,500 toys were collected at Kum & Go locations.

Kum & Go annually gives back 10 percent of its profits to the communities in which it operates. For the past three years, the convenience retailer has raised additional money to help the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
